Hi all,

We'll be doing another FreeDV Activity Day on Saturday, August 6, 2022! This event will bring together people interested in HF digital voice on the air for conversation and fun. Contacts usingthe official application as well as the SM1000 handheld microphone are welcome.

Event time: 9AM Pacific time (1600Z) on August 6th to 8:59AM (1559Z) on August 7th (24 hours), though you're welcome to operate before or after this block of time :)
Suggested frequencies:
80 meters: 3.625, 3.643 or 3.693 MHz
40 meters: 7.177 MHz
20 meters: 14.236 MHz
17 meters: 18.118 MHz
15 meters: 21.313 MHz
12 meters: 24.933 MHz
10 meters: 28.330 or 28.720 MHz

(Note that LSB/DIGL is used below 10MHz as per current convention for voice modes, USB/DIGU otherwise.)

As this isn't a contest, there's no pressure to make contacts or send logs, but you can always confirm QSOs via the usual means if you'd like (LoTW, eQSL, QRZ, etc.) Enabling PSK Reporter in the FreeDV application and joining theQSO Finderare recommended, however, so others can see that you're on the air and hearing them (for instance, here'sthe current map of listeners). :D

Feel free to spread this far and wide among your local ham friends and groups! :) Let me know if you have any questions about the event and definitely post here if you have issues getting the application working prior to the event.

Thanks,
